Mini Cam Clamp

About This Item

Lighter weight and slimmer profile! The mini cam clamp was developed by our repair expert Dan Erlewine.

It has the same easy adjustment as a standard cam clamp: simply slide the upper jaw into position and flip the cam lever to tighten. Small but strong, it provides plenty of clamping pressure for guitar work. The slimmer profile makes this clamp ideal for working on smaller instruments too, and whenever reduced weight and tighter placement of multiple clamps become necessary.

Made of sturdy hardwood and steel, the mini cam clamp has protective cork jaw linings, 5-3/8" depth, 1/2" width, and opens to 6-3/4".

Okay, but

The clamps are prone to twisting, so be careful as you tighten them down. I’ve had glue joints slip on me.

Good Cam, poor cork

By

Verified Buyer


These little clamps are great. They have lots of action and hold down power. The cam is engineered very well on this product. Sadly the cork has fallen off 1 out of 2 spots, out of the box. Easy to fix with a little glue. Besides the cork falling off, the craftsmanship on this product meets my expectations.

These clamps twist. I'm sorry I bought 2. Stick with your German clamps. Iv'e never had trouble with those in 30 years.

Mini clamps have their purpose

By

Verified Buyer


I got these for exactly what they are for, clamping the bridge in a tight spot when bigger clamps are in the way and you need just that extra little bit. I rate this as average only because I wish the clamping ability was a bit stronger. These helped but not as much as I would have thought, still not bad but you absolutely need larger clamps as these alone would never be able to have enough power to stabilize the bridge.

Better for smaller instruments

By

Verified Buyer


I only work on guitars not mandos or ukes. While the clamps are strong enough and the small size is nice for multiple clamps when doing bridges I find its not really necessary. They tend to twist due to their narrow width. Not a big deal they just need to be reset.
The small size is not as valuable as I thought and I prefer my larger cam clamps even for bridges.

Love these clamps

They are super lightweight but plenty strong. Great for acoustic bridge and brace work. They are slim so they are easy to fit in a sound hole with other clamps.

light weight stuff

I found these clamps are to weak to really clamp a crack together on a martin - maybe if i had a few more I only have two, they didn't hold tight enough. I got a 6 inch hand pump clamp at the hardware store for 12 bucks or so; much better adjustable pressure. Works well though with stew's mini clamps as a back up tho; they just don't have enough pressure to exert on holding pieces together like my cracked martin

ok

These are ok, work for some things well dont know why but I was expecting them to be better... Maybe because the regular stewmac cam clamps are really good...

I bought a bunch of these to clamp tops and backs. They work perfectly! Light weight and fast! Very well made, just what I was looking for!

good for what they're designed for

By


This clamp is good for brace repairs where a very lightweight clamp is needed, or when you're afraid a heavier cam/C clamp may damage a guitar. However this clamp can only apply a small amount of clamping pressure, so if you need lots of pressure use another clamp... will work for gluing bridges IF it's very well fitted... because this clamp will not apply enough pressure to really close it up. I would really recommend the soundhole C clamp thing for that job. For what they're meant for they do the job very well but don't expect to use it for general woodworking.
